I have been involved in Linux and FreeBSD system administration for over 10 years when I began managing servers for a social networking website. After starting my own web hosting business and working in multiple positions in both the private and public sector, I consider myself an expert in system administration and designing systems to meet customer needs. With degrees in Business Honors and Management Information Systems, I can quickly articulate business needs and translate these into technical requirements. My technical experience allows me to then research and choose the best and most economical needs to match customer requirements.

Hi! I'm an dually degreed electrical engineer but also have very substantial software engineering experience. I'll start with the latter since it is probably more conducive to online work. I am highly proficient in C++, C and Python; as for coding categories, I'm proficient with TCP/UDP/IP, serial (asynchronous and synchronous), USB, bit-bang methods, direct memory access, board bring-up and cross-compilation / non-x86 platforms (specifically ARM and PIC). Further, I'm a Linux enthusiast and have 12+ years using Linux in desktop, server and embedded applications. I have in depth knowledge of U-Boot, RedBoot, Grub, Lilo, Bash, the Linux Kernel, Wireshark, tcpdump, netcat and all the other standard open-source Linux utilities. I'm comfortable with Ubunutu/Debian, RHEL and its associated clones, Slackware and custom Linux builds (creating custom Linux builds is also a skill). As far as electrical and computer engineering, I have a strong background in COTS integration, antennas, satellite design, autonomous sensor design and integration, board schematic and layout, parts selection, satellite communications, VSATs, and various other EE/CPE concepts.
Over the last three years I have developed enterprise-level, fully scaleable web-based applications from scratch including a world-wide train station mapper that allows user-input for crowdsourcing growth, built upon a LAMP stack with AJAX integration for a responsive, real-time experience. Start-ups and established companies regularly seek my input and experience when designing and implementing their unique ideas, in order to ensure they are making economic and realistic decisions for their product. Companies that have sought out my experience include Capilano University (I have been an Instructor there for 5 years teaching Flash Animation) and the non-profit ShareShed that seeks to unite local communities using an interactive online interface.

Senior Ruby on Rails developer with 4+ years experience in the RoR technology and 10+ years in web development. My biggest strength is ability to design clean architecture for even very complicated products. I always design normalized databases and keep everything in conventions. I love to: - build apps with high performance requirements, including designing cache layer, configuring server environment etc. - create nontrivial solutions (ie. using metaprogramming) - create user friendly solutions My biggest achievements: - I've built middleware for very big mobile app which can handle thousands of requests per seconds on one dedicated server - I had own startup since my high school, which had 300 thousands unique users / 3 milions pageviews per month - I have participated in dozens of commercial projects (mostly RoR apps, few mobile - Titanium, iOS) and in most of them I was main architect and team leader
